TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Taiwan Water Corporation (TWC), a state-owned enterprise that provides water supply services across most parts of Taiwan, is mulling a plan to increases water fees next year.

The evaluation report will go through an internal review next January before being submitted to the Ministry of Economic Affairs, its supervising agency, for approval.    [FULL  STORY]
